    Why don't they target the rest of the world? Madrid? London? Paris? Beirut? Mogadishu? Tanzania? Singapore? Manila? What do all these places have in common?

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    they all hate Americans

    I'll add to the list. Glasgow, Bali, Jakarta, Istanbul, Casablanca, and Seattle.

    No sense in flailing about when philosophical beliefs and ideology are firmly rooted.

    This is undoubtedly a part of what is going on in this poll. American's are gravely concerned about our level of debt, the economic changes that have drawn jobs out of our country and are, in my view, just tired of playing policeman in a world where eve the majority of our friends stay on the sideline in times of trouble. I believe that we are becoming concerned that our own government does not represent our interests but that of the governing class (read those elected to office) itself.

    Cue the villagers with torches storming the castle.

    Do you feel that we don't have the resources to promote democracy through military means?

    I don't think it's our place to protmote democracy. I think that we should do business with other nations, but I don't think we should try to influence their governmental structures. Be friends, not family.

    I see. I think it is up to us whether we want it to be our place. We decide.

    Sure but nothing happened like 9/11 and we don't fight wars and kill innocent civillians. Are you going to tell me that 9/11 is some conspiracy theory?
